Miriam becomes like a mother to Aziza, someone she can confide in.
Although Aziza is the offspring of Laila and Rasheed, Mariam is very much a maternal figure to her. Mariam is calming on Aziza and tries to teach her how to survive as a girl in this male dominated society. She really protects her from Rasheed who is disappointed he has a daughter.
